Not directly. All our tea is stored in Germany since April 2019 or in Taiwan (Puerh Tea) – thus the tea was already packaged before the outbreak and you can enjoy it without any fear.
For the 2020 harvest, we have taken some precautions such as that we will additionally test any tea with the SGS institute (food safety, pesticide). Our tea tour 2020 we will only source tea from farmers that we already know from before and have a standing relationship. But there will be still some rarities coming your way! Taiwan and China both have very strict travel laws so unfortunately, we can not be there in person this year. Our flights got cancelled, which is unfortunate also on a personal level as some you might know that we have family there. Luckily together with our partners, we worked out ways, so we can still get you updates on the harvest.
We offer free shipping now for you from 40€ in Germany. The postal services are still working but everything might be a little slower. Thank you for your patience.
We are also in close contact with all farmers and suppliers and can ensure you that they and their families are safe so far. It is a difficult time for everyone but luckily no one we know is directly affected.
